real is the recovery? how can america keep putting people back to work? we'll have a spirited debate. and i'll be joined by diane sawyer as we ask, how important is it to buy things that are made in america? >>> in libya, an uprising erupts into civil war. colonel gadhafi told me his people love him. but now his forces are battling a rebel army in the streets. we'll have the latest. and my exclusive interview with senator john mccain. he's calling for intervention. >>> and we'll meet the women behind the upraising. could they be al qaeda's biggest threat? >>> welcome to our viewers here and around the world. these days, americans have had to think hard about where the united states stands in the world. how the american worker fits into a new and changes global economy. and why stand the united states should take as people fight for basic freedoms around the middle east. we turn first to jobs. issue number one for the american people. and this week, finally, some good news to report. for the first time in almost two years, the unemployment rate has dropped below 9%. 192,000 jobs were
standard. our invasions, he wrote, have been liberations. the weekly standard says libya will be america's fifth war of muslim liberation. they even posted alongside this editorial this portrait of the american revolutionary war. i am not sure of the exact analogy. when you think about it, the american colonial rebels are, maybe, they are benghazi, in which case the u.s. intervening in libya is like, like, yeah, okay, the analogy doesn't make sense at all. still, you get the idea. a noble image. libya already america's fifth war of muslim liberation. and that, that triumveret claim is from the right. that is why president obama is doing what he is doing the way he is doing it in libya. it is the overarching america in the world challenge of the obama presidency. it is the overall america in the world challenge of all americans after the george w. bush era. this image, still promoted by the american right, even now, that the u.s. is stomping around the muslim world, imposing our desires on those savage people because frankly we know better. that is the narrative of america in the world in
the winning play, then collapses and dies. we learned what happened to his heart. >>> and made in america. your great ideas for keeping jobs here at home. tonight, the american worker is our "person of the week." >>> good evening. they were out there today at just about every gasoline station in america, 114,000 stations across the country. the workers pulling down one set of prices and slapping up new, higher ones. prices all americans have seen climb almost every single day. since the start of the year, take a look at this, the average price of a gallon has jumped 10%, from $3.07 to $3.38. so, we sought an answer. how much higher can this go? matt gutman reports in tonight from hollywood, florida. $3.53 next to you, matt. >> reporter: that's right, diane, and oil prices today closed at their highest level since any time since september 2008, just a little over $104 a barrel. and the experts we spoke to said even they were surprised by how quickly these gas prices followed. and they said the soaring prices are not likely to slow down any time soon. not since hurricane katrina shut down o
florida is burning. >>> made in america. are you sure your home is filled with american goods? we show one family the truth and what a shock tonight. >>> and, surprising life. the unexpected story of america's pioneer pinup girl, jane russell, who died yesterday. >>> good evening. the last time it happened in america, it was 1963, and john kennedy was in the white house. we got answers to some direct questions about women in the united states. what are their paychecks, their opportunities and their obstacles? well, now, tonight, almost 50 years later, those questions have finally been asked and answered once again. a huge new report on american women, where gains have been made, where ground has been lost. and we have two correspondents on the case tonight, elizabeth vargas and jake tapper, who starts us off at the white house, where the study was released just today. jake? >> reporter: that's right, diane. good evening. the white house released today what it called the most comprehensive study by the government on women in almost 50 years. each day, 72 million women in the u.s. get up and
operation odyssey door signal a major change in america's foreign policy in that region? tonight the great middle east debate for some of the top minds in the country, both sides of the aisle. senator lindsay graham, donald trump. congressman anthony wiener, p.j. crowley. former libyan ambassador, general richard myers. we begin tonight with cnn's ni k robertson live from tripoli. did anyone see the speech where you are? >> reporter: no one will have seen it on state television and there's been no comment on state television about it. they have chosen to broadcast a number of other things, reruns of political analysts putting forth the government position. but plenty of people you can be sure will have watched it on channels like cnn. they watch the international news organizations here, particularly anyone in the opposition because they don't trust the state media here because they don't get the full picture. but it's the middle of the night here so we really don't have reaction from anyone at the moment. certainly you can count on the fact that gadhafi will feel that he's dodged the bull
tour. it seems as if he doesn't think america last -- has the moral authority to be the leader. so the u.n. moves forward and hillary and other members of the administration. france, ever think we would be following the french? france and great britain move forward. then he's forced into doing something he doesn't want to do. >> this is serious business. we are at war. war is about -- >> sean: no, this is a kinetic military action. >> yeah. kinetic scope limited man caused disaster. the point about it is that war is about will. you've got to know what the end game is. you not to know your war aims. multi-lateral war mongering saps at will. this feels like that business in 1991 where we had the world's most perfect multi-lateral coalition at the end saddam hussein was still in power, regarded as the guy who stood up to the great satan and still standing in the end. if gadhafi is still in power in a month this communicates nothing other than american weakness. >> sean: a i agree. how could this be about winning when he said last night, america's role is limited. we are own on the fro
address on saturday. here's what he said in south america last week about why we're there. >> our military action is in support of an international mandate from the security council that specifically focuses on the humanitarian threat posed by colonel gadhafi to his people. now, i also have stated that it is u.s. policy that gadhafi needs to go. and we've got a wide range of tools in addition to our military efforts to support that policy. >> what does he need to say tonight? >> he hasn't addressed the american people and done it in a sort of logical way to explain why the it's in the u.s. interest, and particularly with secretary gates saying it's not a vital interest of the united states. how does this differ? i don't think he's going to address this tonight. i think he wants to be deliberately ambiguous about this. but why is this in the united states interest to protect civilians, the humanitarian mission and not what's happening in syria, to protesters. why it's not in our interest to protect the protesters in yemen or in bahrain. so that case has not been made. and i don't think he's
latin america, the economy, he may take one question and have a brief statement but it's the balancing act, why he is no latin america. but obviously acknowledging the major news in libya. >> well, one question's going to one heck of an answer. because i want to know, a lot of people want to know what are we doing in libya? are we going in there to kill gadhafi? if not, what is the plan for gadhafi? what is he to do? if you were gadhafi what would you do? we're going in there with a so-called no-fly zone but limited potential for fire power. going after his command and control center, which is basically him. what is he to do? are we offering him an escape out of country? what end game are we forcing him to. i wish i knew this. war is politics by other means what are the politics of this war? certainly in the short run it's to protect lives of people who would be killed in a slaughter of civil yaians an in benghazi. i hope the american people keep asking that, what are we trying to accomplish here. the news reporting has been unsatisfactory in that regard. i don't know if you are even a
are in it. we better be in it to win it. if there is doubt we get out. win it means gadhafi goes and america gets to get out of there. and let the people of why create their own government. choose their own leader. and america, no nation building, we get out, we take care of our affairs elsewhere. >> greta: one he steps down. two he goes into exile and leaves libya and three he is captured and stands trial and four he's killed. which should be the goal? >> i think gadhafi is going to end up dead through this mission. whether it is at the hands of the rebels who have turned on him. or whether it is at the hands of america and her allies as we are engaged in in no-fly zone. which again, seems to be turning into much more. i think at the end of the day gadhafi is not gonna go willingly. >> greta: is it a failure on our part if we turnover command and control to someone else to nato or france or whatever. and gadhafi is still in power s that a failure on our part? >> america will have failed. -- if we turnover command and control of this mission and the mission of ousting gadhafi is not fulfille
thought it was a good idea. >> america cannot use the military wherever repression occurs. given the costs and risks, we must measure our interests against the need for action. but that cannot be an argument for never acting. on behalf of what's right. in this particular country, libya at this particular moment, we were faced with the prospect on a horrific scale. they had a unique ability to stop the violence and a mandate for action. a brought coalition prepared to join us. the support of arab countries and a plea for help from the libyan people themselves. we also have the title stop gadhafi's forces in their tracks without putting american troops on the ground. america's responsibility has a leader and more profoundly our responsibilities to fellow human beings under such circumstances would have been a detrayal of who we are. some nations may be able to turn a blind eye to atrocities in other countries. the us of america is different. >> the united states of america is different. he is being very careful to talk about this particular country. this particular moment. then describing ve
within 50 miles of the most vulnerable nuclear plant of the united states of america and the governor has said the plant should be closed. we'll have that story. the latest round of misinformation about the japan crisis by glenn beck. that's in the takedown. and at the end of the hour, my commentary with this simple message. wage earners of america, this show has not forgotten about you. news events may unfold beyond our control but i have not forgotten about the protesters in wisconsin, ohio, new jersey, and michigan. or the middle class in any state in this country. next, the very latest on the catastrophe in japan. stay with us. you're watching "the ed show" on msnbc. we're america's natural gas. and here's what we did today in homes all across america: we created the electricity that powered the alarm clocks and brewed the coffee. we heated the bathwater and gave kelly a cleaner ride to school. cooked the cube steaks and steamed the veggies. entertained dad, and mom, and a neighbor or two. kept watch on the house when they slept. and tomorrow we could do even more. we're cleaner, dome
in here. >> he named this as an important strategic interest of the united states and as being in america's national interest. but the things that he described as proving that were potential flood of refugees in the middle east, the democratic impulses on view in the middle east with the various revolutions and uprisings being quenched by this brutal dictator, and un credibility, speaking for the international community and stepping up in cases like this. that is the sort of thing, you could make that case about america having a strong national strategic interest for any number of other conflicts or potential conflicts that we could get ourselves embraid in in the region or in any other region. what he defined tonight was why libya and not syria, why libya and not yemen, why not the other places where there are bad things going on that could cause a flood of refugees. and he essentially said because it could be done in libya. the united states had an opportunity. >> this is located in between egypt and tunesia. he was very specific about the problem being the flood of refugees, over those
:00. >>> tonight on "world news," fight for the future. bill gates throws down a gauntlet, saying america should stop wasting education money and put it where it gives our kids a real edge in school. >>> mormon pledge. a college basketball star has sex with his girlfriend and he and his winning team pay a very high price. what do you think is right? >>> time to go. 17 days into the libyan crisis. the president says gadhafi should leave and won't rule out military help. >>> made in america. after our family gives up all their foreign goods for american ones, how much did it cost to buy made in america? >>> and we'll tell you about an entire little town that kept pumping and pumping a heart until a miracle happened. >>> good evening. we begin with a high stakes showdown we see in state after state after state. the battle over teachers, schools and money. well, today, bill gates, whose foundation spends hundreds of millions of dollars on u.s. schools, called out state officials for incompetence, wasting money and making grave mistakes about teaching american kids to succeed. and ron claiborne is he
seemed possibly to be the admission by president obama that america would now be actively henning these rebels and presumably arming them in the process. what did you make of that development in this story? >> reporter: if that's the way this is going to take shape over the coming weeks and months, it's clearly going to be a very protracted affair, because the opposition really isn't in a place to face off against gadhafi's army, even if you neutralize the army, their heavy weapons, their superiority, and advantage on the battlefield, what would seem to be serving -- gadhafi's armed the tribes loyal to him so you see people with more weapons on gadhafi's side and will use them against the rebels. this will turn to a wider civil war where even gadhafi can't predict what's going to happen. if the united states and others are going to arm the rebels, he's going to have to keep the pressure up on the rebels and he's going to have to arm the population that will support him. those oil installations that the rebels have just taken over the last few days piers. >> nic robertson, i want t good evening, rachel. >> in the united states of america, we are used to thinking of ourselves as a super power and throwing our weight around when he feel the need to. only when you take a step back and take a wide historical view that you realize one of the consequences of that self concept is that we end up feeing that need to throw our weight around quite a lot. we go to war all the time big wars, little wars, yum wars and wars. america fights a lot of wars. >> the participation will be for a limited period, but i concluded there is no alternative to returning to lebanon if they are to have a chance to stand on their own feet. grenada is a friendly island paradise for tourism. it was a colony getting ready as a bastian to export terror and undermine democracy. we got there just in time. >> at 7:00 eastern time, air forces of the united states launched a series of strikes against the headquarters, terrorists for 70s and military assets that support mo ma gadhafi's activities. >> allied forces began an attack in iraq and kuwait. these attacks continue as i speak. >> let me sa
states of america. and if the european allies and nato cannot manage to pursue this with the same intensity that they have exhibited over the last week, they are likely to call upon the united states to do more and the u.s. will remain part of the coalition. i think that's part of the complexity of this and the contradictions inherit in his policy that the president will have to address this evening. >> nick and david, back with us in a few minutes. how has the coalition military campaign changed the balance of power on the ground in libya? i want to go to the map and look at this. the president does not like the term war when it comes to this. is this a war? is the united states at war? >> well, you talk about war and i think you talk about world war one and i would not use the term "war." the guy on the ground getting shot at, it's like war. >> the president of the united states addresses the american people tonight. i want to close the map and go back here to march 18th. let me close this one down today. this is march 18th. this is the day before it all started. and here's -- y

that america is heavily involved but doesn't really want anyone to know that. which seems to be a rather pointless exercise in terms of the p.r. here, isn't it? >> no someone pretending that america is not involved. the announcement of the strategy indicated that we've been providing capability that we are uniquely qualified to provide. but as the days go by, more and more sorties will be carried out by air forces of other countries, more operations will be taken over, our role will become somewhat diminished. still engaged, still involved. obviously, helping to coordinate, but i think that's the transition we're watching. >> it's a very unusual position for american military to find itself in here. no one talking to all the generals in the last few days has really been clear what the mission is to start with. we hear it's costing america a billion dollars on air strikes, which the country can really hardly afford. i mean, isn't it time for some real clarity? and dare i say it, leadership here? >> well, i have to disagree with you there. i think the mission is quite clear. and what the p

therefore, the main task of latin america is to recover the lost time and tap all of its potential. we have lots of things in common with the u.s., fast, generous territory, homogeneous people, hardworking people. we don't have racial problems that affect some african countries or the wars that are waged in europe nor the religious conflict of europe itself. and therefore latin america is called to compromise or rather commitment with its own fate. and therefore we are looking forward to president obama's words. we are all left-handed. we have many coincidences. we studied in harvard, both of us. we are sportsmen. president obama continues to be a basketball player. i was in my time as well. i think the first lady of the u.s. is very good-looking, and president obama has said the same thing about the first lady of chile. there are plenty of 0 coincidences. but the most important one is the one we'll find this afternoon, and modestly if i could suggest to president obama, we hope to have a partnership that is two -- one where we have all responsibilities and not existentialism becau
. why is he suing cbs? >>> and made in america. a family is stunned when we go through their house searching for u.s. products. all about creating more american jobs. >>> good evening. we begin tonight with a u.s. exclusive, moammar gadhafi. the flamboyant and brutal dictator at the center of the firestorm in libya. today our christiane amanpour became the only american reporter to sit with gadhafi. he refused to acknowledge libyan protesters. he laughed at demands that he step down, even as anti-government forces rage across his country. so let's go right away to christiane in tripoli. good evening, christiane. you sat right across from the man. the whole world is wondering what he'll do next. what did you hear? reporter: well, diane, i see he was relaxed and focused, determined to tell his side of the story. he exhibited no sense of a siege mentality. on the other hand, he remains incapable of realizing that in this country there is an uprising against him. colonel gadhafi emerged from the first of a convoy of cars, greeting us at a beachfront restaurant as the sun set over the m
on libya and the latin america tour. those reports after these messages. >> bill: impact segment tonight, cnn anchor nancy grace apparently very concerned about fallout from the japanese nuclear reactors hitting the u.s.a. >> bernie, explain how this is going to effect us. >> well, in the united states divlong is going to be a big impact at all. >> bernie. >> here we go, nancy, huh? >> yeah. here we go. that's what you said. >> it not head to the united states. >> that's what you said last anytime. >> i'm going to continue to say it, nancy. this is not damaging radiation in the united states. >> bill: all right, clearly miss grace not buying that and the state emergency in l.a. was for the waves that hit crescent city and other coastal sounds not for the radiation. is laura ingraham about radiation as well? she joins us now from washington. now, the reason i'm doing this segment at all libyan situation in a moment. proud of the way covered the japanese nuke thing. did not thip and go into the land of speculation. cnn did, quite frankly, it paid off for cnn. they have now passed msnbc and
responsibilities on to other countries. that is okay. we need all the allies we can get but if america is an exceptional countries our leaders have to have that mind set. does president obama? you make the call. that is memo. now for the top story, let's bring in two generals to analyze whether president obama is doing the job as commander in chief. joining us is paul eaton, spent 30 years in the army and general jack key, former vice chief of staff under clinton and bush. your assessment of the president commander and chief? >> first we're talking about leadership here. when i think of the commander in chief's leadership, i'm retired as being uneven and inconsistent. at times he is strong and decisive and other times he is weak. he is strong in stepping up the war against al-qaeda. clearly strong and decisive in escalating the war in afghanistan over objections to people. changed the strategy fundamental inconsistent because at the same time announces a withdrawal before the operation actually begins undermines our allies and encourages our opponents and makes the war more difficult t

there are two different political parties in the united states of america. the chamber of commerce spent more money in last year's election than any other outside spending group. they put 93% of their chamber of commerce donations towards republican candidates. there are two sides. and because the democratic side is inherently the one with more people continue, and this is a democracy, and it is one person, one vote, the republican side in order to compete with that have to use money to leverage as many votes as they can. their side represents the interest of fewer people. that's where they found social issues and abortion and gay rights and religion and all of these other things to come in handy. there's an economic split between the two parties, between democrats and republicans, but more people are on the democratic side of that economic split, almost by definition. so republicans have had to use noneconomic conditions to get people to vote with the economic elite and against their own economic interest. the other way this works is this. to the extent that democrats embrace their role as s
